Grades 7-11 will display works by 14 students in media of chalk, painting, lino prints and mixed media. Matt Guise is the art instructor and new FAA board member.

According to FAA Volunteer Director, Suzan Kessel "It is great to have two talented local art teachers on our board and see them share creative ideas from their classrooms. The Fairfield School System has presented art exhibits for all of the 57 years the FAA has existed. I personally remember showing my junior and senior high school art work at the old FAA gallery in the then Fairfield Library basement (Carnegie Building). Instructors then were Don Kremer Jr. High and Bob Glocke at FHS, both founders of the FAA AND STILL FAA MEMBERS. (Mark Shafer followed Glocke) Fairfield has had a reputation of having brilliant dedicated art instructors and the schools fabulous art programs - We can really celebrate that!"
